Logistical Support of the Russian Armed Forces

Logistical Support of the Russian Armed Forces (Russian: Материально-техническое обеспечение Вооружённых сил Российской Федерации) or MTO are a unified system of command and control bodies, institutions and other military organizations that provide technical and logistical support for all branches of the Russian Armed Forces. The MTO system of the Russian Armed Forces combines 2 previously independent types of comprehensive support: technical and logistical, both of which existed in the structure of the Rear of the Russian Armed Forces up until it was dissolved in 2010.[2] The management of Logistical Support is entrusted to the central bodies of military command, subordinate to the Deputy Minister of Defense, General of the Army Dmitry Bulgakov.[3][4]
